At Ear and Balance Clinic, Dr. Carol Jackson and Dr. Ashley Beko offer a unique approach we call Integrated Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy or iVRT, by combining medical management and vestibular therapy to help patients who suffer from types of vertigo, dizziness or unsteadiness. Following diagnostic vestibular testing performed, Dr. Jackson and Dr. Beko work together to create a customized treatment and therapy plan to improve vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, as well as secondary symptoms, such as headache and nausea. This includes taking therapy a step further, when necessary, to evaluate a patient's other medical conditions electrolyte/vitamin levels, sleep patterns, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
